The first day results of the Amazon promotion for my book, Exclusive, were a huge success.
We scored over 2k downloads in one day!
Exclusive is being offered Free exclusively on Amazon. This is similar to how iTunes will offer a free single of the day or recording artist will give a free download. It allows new people to become familiar with your work. And, hopefully, these new people will become new fans of yours. The key to being a successful author, singer, or artist is to expand your base. This promotion with Amazon definitely allowed me to do that. So, what does a successful promotion on Amazon really get you?
In Amazon speak, 2k downloads earns you a #1 spot in 3 categories. The 3 categories in which we placed #1 are below. The screenshot shows the Best Sellers categories on the bottom left.
African American Fiction Urban
African American Romance
Genre Fiction Urban
This is huge. We really only requested 2 categories, but based on our sales, we earned a spot in a 3rd category.
I’d love to see if we can break 10k downloads during our first Amazon promotion. Be a part of this movement and join the promotion, click here.
Here’s info on the book:
Behind the velvet rope.
Battles over money, prestige, and power.
A woman who wants love but must go beyond the velvet rope to get it.
When journalist Tisha Ariel Nikkole accepts an assignment to interview, superstar artist / rapper, Keyshawn “Shout” Lane, she’s expecting the egotistical, self-absorbing , playboy that dominates magazine covers. What she finds…
Changes her life.
In New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, Keyshawn shows her a different side–a side filled with compassion and round-the-way charm. But, when he confides in her that he’s fighting for his life against corruption, power struggles and deceit against a record label executive gone mad, Tisha has to figure out what to do next.
Will Tisha help Shout? Will she become a target by association? Will vindictive record executive, Jordan Ellis, destroy both of their lives?
By the end this book, someone is on life support. Who will it be?
–Peace & Love,
